Artist's Description

Tater Frontside 5-0 Shallow End – Empire Park Skate Park, Newcastle, Australia

A local Skateboarder nick-named “Tater” performs a skate trick called a Frontside 5-0 in the shallow end of the Skate Bowl at Empire Park.

When you ride along the top edge of a skate ramp (or any street obstacle that you can ride on) with both trucks grinding across the coping or edge, it’s called a 50-50. Half of your truck slides along the surface, and half of the width of the truck (the wheels are attached to it) is hanging out in no mans land. A 5-0 grind is a similar trick to a 50-50, but this time you just ride on the back truck by putting lots of pressure on the tail of the board to hold the nose up off the surface/coping by doing a wheelie. Before you run out of speed, you lean into the ramp/transition a bit and turn the board back down into the ramp or if you are on a street obstacle you’ll probably have to ollie off the thing you are grinding. They call it grinding because that’s what happens to your skateboard truck every single time you do a grind – the metal gets worn away by the abrasive effects of riding steel on concrete, stone or wood etc.

There are three ways to ride/orientate yourself on a skateboard – straight-on, backside and frontside. Backside is with your back to the turn or riding surface, frontside is the opposite, and straight (ahead) is just that.

The shot was taken with a Canon 450D and a standard Canon 55 – 250 mm lens set at:

The text and graphic elements were added in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.
